I think I have the bakefiles for master fixed. I'll get a PR out there tomorrow, but others will need to test it before it is merged.

Dear omalleypat, 

Thank you very much for looking into this. I have updated the source files from git today and managed to get it compiled and working now. The program is still looking for the report files in the wrong place but moving them to the directory where it is looking for them did the trick.

It could be a problem with bakefiles as  I can't recreate them (it is a python problem, not related to mmex).

Thanks again.

The problem is that the Bakefiles need to be updated. They were made for linux and I've figured out which configure options need to be set to get it to work on the mac (that is what is posted to the wiki). You are right that we should not need to do all that and fixing this has been on my to-do list for some time, but the bakefile version 0.2.9 used by the project is very old and does not work on the current Mac OS. It would require upgrading all the bakefiles to the current version of Bakefile first, then adding the modifications to fix the mac-specific issues. Since there never seemed to be many other interested mac devs, I haven't spent the time to do it since I have it working.

I used the command "tree" to list the folder structure of the app bundle. You can probably get tree from brew. Just make sure the directory structure in your app bundle is the same as the one I posted and I think that should fix your issue. Hope that helps!
It is possible to share the MAC dmg for V1.3.0? I tried and I am not able to build on my own.
